Why are we so attached to our “things,” our lives, and our beliefs? And, why do we consider our lives and things to be so “real” and solid? From a “Spiritual Perspective,” and quantum theory, the objects in our lives may not be as “solid” as our human senses ask us to believe. Perhaps our human lives, living in only 3 dimensions, are limited to “know” the full depth and breadth of our Universe and what may exist in the Divine Spirit’s Higher Realms…
Impermanence reminds us that nothing stays as a it is, in nature, weather, our bodies, emotions, political systems, relationships, and even in family dynamics. Yet we often wish things would stay the same, without change because we are “comfortable with things the way they are” (or appear to be.) We are attached to our possessions and our relationships. We define ourselves by our material things. We are often in an emotional state where we feel “safer” and happier when we are surrounded by our “stuff.” When our “stuff” is threatened, or taken, or lost, we feel less than whole and our fears, anxieties and our angers are often elevated. But we are not our possessions. We are more than the frail human lives that we are here to play as a role in the human drama.
There can be a huge benefit to not being attached to our things, to our relationships, and even, to our human lives. And, our human lives are transitory. Our human lives do not go on forever…
When we see the world as impermanent, we can deepen our attention to what is here now because we can appreciate that it is temporary. We can respond with the “Beginner’s Mind” and celebrate each moment as the creative miracle which it is. And we can suffer less when things do change, knowing that we can be more fully present to connect, saver, and enjoy our lives as it is and in each “present” moment. Perhaps, we can even learn that the attachments to things, experiences, and relationships can hold us back from where we are headed in our human lives and our spiritual developments.
Everything changes. Even our attitudes evolve as we move further along the path in our human lives. We gain in experience and wisdom as we live the challenges we encounter. Some of these challenging experiences are brutal and difficult. “What does not kill us, makes us stronger.” Occasionally, we even learn lessons from our mistakes and, even, possibly, from our successes. These “learnings” are can become a way of being of service if we share from these experiences. Though these experiences are “important” and can hold great value, which may enhance our learnings if we do not become too attached or stuck. We do not want to have to relive these things too often so we can be free to move on and attempt new experiences and new learning (or rememberings…)
Let us not get too attached to our things or our experiences or our relationships or even, our lives, and then lose connection with our soul and our interconnection with all of the Divine Consciousness. Our soul is growing and yet governed by the same laws of human impermanence… Our souls evolve and the Divine Spirit continues in a an unconditional loving bond forever… (Which is a very long time and near impossible for the human consciousness to fully comprehend.)
Let Go of Your Attachments and appreciate most fully the present moment. You can find a perfection and many miracles in a fully conscious moment.
